Warm waters of the Indian Ocean lap onto the boulders and sands of the beaches of the eastern side of this, fairest of all Capes. Penguins dart about or collude with each other amongst massive boulders, and waves crash against the sheer cliffs of the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Tuna and other game fish shelter in coves facing False Bay. Fifty kilometers to the north, the majestic Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Helderberg and Hangklip mountains tower over world famous vineyards.
